If you're looking to start the year with a new console and having been leaning towards the Sony side of things, this deal from Amazon is a good shout. The listing may look like only the console is included, but it actually comes with a copy of the highly enjoyable LittleBigPlanet 3. For sub-£300 I'd say that's a bit of a bargain. Thanks to cajagos @ HUKD!

We're seeing a lot of these "pick and choose your own games" bundles today, and now Tesco are joining in with their own PlayStation 4 offer. For £339, you can choose between a black or white PS4, and a choice of two games between two selections - the first being The Last Of Us Remastered or Drive Club, and the second between LEGO Batman 3, FIFA 15, or Far Cry 3. We've also seen word that those with the ClubCard boost can potentially make an even greater saving. Just hit the link below and follow the three steps to create your bundle.

It's yet another PS4 bundle from ShopTo via Ebay for the PS4, but instead of big action titles or sports games being included, we have a family friendly bundle with two differing yet fantastic titles.
What's noteworthy about the games included is that you can do local co-op, although you'll have to get a second controller separately (keep an eye out on here, we'll highlight a good deal for one eventually.) Thanks to mondaytuesdayhappydays @ HUKD for the find!
With the recent £30 Amazon deal now a distant memory, this is the cheapest price for a Dualshock 4 if you want a new one as a spare or replacement for your PS4. On the bring side, you get to choose from three colours. Which is nice.

With Christmas and Black Friday fast approaching, it's time for our annual console buyer's guides packed with useful advice, cheap console bundle deals and the best games bargains for the hottest software. Now we're ready to give the PS4 its dues.
Sony's console has been flying off the shelves this past year on the strength of its beefy specifications, best-in-class controller, affordable pricing, nifty features and the promise of more quality first-party exclusives. Unfortunately we'll have to wait until next year for big hitters like Bloodborne and Uncharted 4, but the PS4 makes up for it with canny third-party deals, superb indie games and an impressively varied lineup of software big and small.
In this guide we'll discuss the hardware, software and then the cheapest way to get up and running.
For those who want a taste of both new and old, GAME are currently running a PS4 bundle with The Last Of Us Remastered and either Far Cry 4 OR Grand Theft Auto 5 for £349.99. Bargain. Thanks to preparationiskey @ HUKD!
Argos are also running some straightfoward PS4 bundle deals at the moment, the best of which includes the console with Grand Theft Auto V and Far Cry 4 for £359.99. Scroll down to see the special offers. Thanks to Jabbypans @ HUKD!
If you want to make sure you don't run out of games to play, you can net a PS4 with five decent games for under £400 at ShopTo, including Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Wolfenstein and Minecraft. Thanks to preparationiskey @ HUKD!
Dragon Age fans can also get Dragon Age: Inquisition with a new PS4 console for £329.85 at ShopTo.
Finally, if you're in the market for a standalone glacier white console, you can grab a bargain at Gamestop for £299.97. Note that their customer service leaves much to be desired, though. Thanks to ahmadfirdausazmi @ HUKD!
Naturally we expect Black Friday to be bountiful for cheap PS4 bundle deals, but this is the level you want to match or beat! Also be sure to keep an eye on Amazon, who recently offered several bundles at £329.99 and may do so again come the end of November.Click here to read more...
This isn't the cheapest price we've seen, and there's a good chance Black Friday will probably yield better offers, but Amazon currently have the best price for a Dualshock 4 controller. Considering how most other online retailers are normally asking for around £45, it's certainly a tempting offer for those in urgent need a spare or replacement.
We here at Dealspwn are big fans of the Dualshock 4, considering it a vast improvement over the DS3. Comfortable for long sessions and less likely to give you 'the claw' is a plus, but the fact it also works as a PC controller without configuring 3rd party software is nice little bonus. Thanks to knight01 @ HUKD for the heads-up!
The PS4's 'Masamune' firmware update brought a slew of great new features to the console experience, such as Share Play, but it wasn't quite perfect. Many gamers reported that their consoles refused to boot up after being put into Rest Mode, which isn't what any of us signed up for!
Thankfully Sony have sorted things out by way of a new patch, update 2.0.1, which is rolling out today according to the latest tweet from PlayStation Europe. Sorted. Hopefully.
If you haven't tried out Share Play yet, we'd highly suggest you give it a whirl after checking out Matt and Carl's PS4 Share Play Video. If you suffered from the PS4 Rest Mode issue, let us know in the comments!
It may have only been on the big screen for mere seconds, but the news that Dreamfall Chapters would be coming to consoles first on Playstation 4 was a welcome surprise at this year’s Gamescom. So, it was obviously something I wanted to talk about with Ragnar Tørnquist & Dag Scheve of Red Thread Games when I met up with them the following day, to learn more about how the deal was made, and if it meant that Xbox One owners would missing out.Click here to read more...
Sony's official unboxing video was a thing of hammy brilliance, so it's perhaps no surprise that when we came to make our own, we took lashings of inspiration from Yoshida and co.
That's right folks, next-gen (current-gen now I suppose) is finally here, and Sony kindly sent us a PS4 unit and some titles to review. Naturally, the first thing we did was take some pointers from our wonderful community, strap on some gloves, and give Sony's latest console the unboxing treatment.
BEHOLD! Greatness awaits! Maybe.Click here to read more...
Sony's latest PlayStation 4 trailer recaps what to expect from their slanty black box, or more specifically, from the hardware housed within. Expect plenty of languid close-up shots, rakish camera angles and callouts touting the console's impressive specifications; all set to some soothing music.
The PS4 launches on November 29th here in the UK, in case you didn't know. Who's hyped?Click here to read more...
All aboard! The next-gen hype train is well and truly rolling, with Sony now raising the stakes thanks to a new television commercial and community 'Greatness Awaits' website. You can hit the latter through the link and watch the former above, which (shock horror!) is actually rather amusing and effective... relatively speaking. At least it's a far cry from the creepy PS3 adverts and utterly detestable PSP TV spots.

The battle between the industry's two console behemoths is really starting to heat up at the moment, and many gamers are still trying to decide which way they will be going at the end of November, so any opportunity to get hands-on with the PS4 and Xbox One is certainly worthy of note. If you missed the chance to try out both consoles at this year's Eurogamer Expo you've got another opportunity next month at the Gadget Show Live @ Christmas, where both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One will be on the show floor with a selection of launch titles available to help consumers make that all-important purchase decision.Click here to read more...
PlayStation Access have released a new video touting the PS4's graphical grunt, which takes a look at how graphics have improved and evolved since the PSOne era. This will likely be the tip of a publicity iceberg since Sony are planning on discussing PS4 release details and announcements during tomorrow's press conference.
The next generation is so close you can practically smell it. It smells like... polygons.
Sony has informed two major British retailers that, starting today, PS4 pre-orders cannot be guaranteed to ship at launch.Click here to read more...
Last week, I looked at how Microsoft could come out on top in the next-gen console wars despite their initial self-inflicted setbacks. So it’s only fair that I give the same treatment to Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 4. Both consoles are going to release around the same period, just in time for the Christmas madness. We’ve not had consoles launch head-to-head for generations, which means we’re going to see a real fight between the two. Ring that bell Mr. Shopkeeper. It’s so on.
The only downside to PlayStation Plus is the size of your hard-drive. Sony wants to fill it with quality every month. This month alone subscribers were given Battlefield 3, Saints Row The Third, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, Unit 13 and more.
Microsoft have started giving freebies away with Gold subs too. This month Xbox 360 gamers got Defense Grid and the promised ancients of Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed II are still nowhere to be seen. Frankly, it’s a bit embarrassing watching Microsoft try to defend their free tripe.
Yes, PS4 will require a PS+ subscription to play online, but when one subscription covers players for free games on PS3, Vita and PS4, they’d be mad not have one anyway.Click here to read more...
Sony's Mark Cerny expressed his desire for Sony to one day have the kind of enduring legacy that Nintendo are enjoying, discussing the importance of having a longevity in a core group of individuals at the heart of both companies during his keynote speech at Gamelab earlier today.Click here to read more...
Confused about Playstation Plus? Don't be. A new video from Playstation Access has delivered all of the points you need to know, and also highlighted DC Universe Online and the frankly superb Planetside 2 as two F2P games that won't require a PS Plus subscription to play online.
Given that Planetside 2 is amazing, free, and unrestricted, we just got even more
Sketchfab are hosting an interactive model of the PS4 and its controller, which you can pan around, zoom into and otherwise enjoy to your heart's content. As far as we can tell, the "P" in PS4 stands for Parallelogram.
Check it out through the link or after the break, and definitely let us know what you make of Sony's next-gen console.Click here to read more...
